Today was the day that everyone was looking forward to: traveling from Fort Portal to Tororo. Not! This journey across Uganda typically takes anywhere from nine hours to thirteen hours to reach the hotel. We divided up the buses so our team members would get a chance to get to know each other. Three buses and fifty people later we were on our way at 6:30AM.
Everyone was in great spirits and anxious to get to our main site in Tororo. We had an easy safe journey and were happy that we arrived in nine hours. The team experienced yummy chiken-on a-stick, feeding baboons on the road and using African bathroom stalls in the sugar cane.
Pastor Aggre, Pastor Godrey, Angie and Pastor Bill enjoyed several games of the African version of Go Fish. “Do you have a Jinja?” “Oh, I am sorry. I have not. Go to Lake Victoria and drop your net!”
Elizabeth has been in Kenya the last few days checking on our orphans and will be traveling back to Tororo tonight.
